Burn in the Forest  2013 Dates : Thursday July 11th to Sunday July 14th

The Greater Vancouver Interactive Art Society is happy to announce the dates for our summer Regional Burning Man multi-day event. Save the date now and begin planning that awesome theme camp or art installation.  Tickets will be on sale from the end of April.

The dates for BitF are dependent on a number of factors, mainly weather conditions.  Although, this is never guaranteed as demonstrated by the unusual conditions that led to last year’s flooding.  Typically, the end of June to beginning of July has high water levels and risks flooding of the beach. A later date has a higher risk of a fire ban and we would be unable to have a burn.  This is why we choose this weekend.  Every year we do our best to coordinate our dates with neighbouring regionals (Critical Massive and Otherworld) and other major events in the summer but we are restricted by these factors.

One extra day!
We are pleased to announce that we have added a day!  The good news is that we can do this without increasing the ticket price from last year. We need more Rangers to make this possible, please consider taking the ranger training and offering  your support.  We have a number of training opportunities coming up,  the first is on Saturday February 9th.
